Geocache Description:

 

Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!).

 

A 30ml tube



Houghton and Wyton are situated in deepest Cambridgeshire, England, just south of Peterborough, North-West of Cambridge and sandwiched between Huntingdon and St Ives (2 miles each way)

The villages have been there since Saxon times and although best known for the Mill (which, incidentally, now has a working water wheel on weekends and bank holidays), Houghton and Wyton have many more places to explore and wonder at.

There is a fine Norman (Anglican) church, St Mary's and a former chapel that has been converted into a retreat centre.

Every summer (normally the first fortnight of July) there is a week of community events, entitled "feast week". This has included a fun run, fayre and other sporting and fancy dress events. Other events include:

Scarecrow competition Drama evening Tennis tournament Fishing competition Homecraft competitions Gardening competition Poetry (for children) Photo competition Bowls tournament Musical performance Cricket Bingo Fun Run - prize for best Potto Brown lookalike. Riverside Picnic Duck race and face painting Jazz at Houghton mill Car treasure hunt Football competition Antiques road show Golf challenge Cheese and wine and Quiz Open air church service Bread and baking with Houghton Mill Flour


The cache is only a short walk away from the village sign. Please do not go climbing all over the sign!

If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication..
